I know, I know. It's been post after post without food photos for you guys. I'm sorry. Well, there were a few other things to announce and talk about, including the dvd.
Before I get to the food, a quick note to Canadians interested in ordering the Everyday Dish dvd. You can do so. The online form is not currently accepting Cdn addresses. Just send an e-mail that you'd like to order and it will be done!
Also, our favorite vegan momma has posted a review of Everyday Dish. Check it out! And Herbivore is hosting a launch party for the dvd. Wish I could be there, and oh how I wish I could dine in Portland again. You guys go for me and have some fun, ok?!
Alrighty, on to a quick food bite before I get back to my manuscript. This is a lentil recipe that I created as a side dish for Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. But I love it so much it's shown up on our plate as a main dish with rice many times since.
It is Savory French (Puy) Lentils, and I've served them here with short-grain brown rice, a salad of baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, finely sliced fennel (try fennel guys!), and green onions tossed with Lemon Zinger Vinaigrette from Vive. Also some Lemon Broiled Green Beans from ED&BV (ultra simple).
French lentils retain their shape a little more than green (brown) lentils, and far more than red lentils which pretty much dissolve. They have a naturally earthy flavor, and so I cook them in a broth of sorts to accentuate that earthiness. The savory flavor paired with the lemony beans and salad is just delicious. This is the kind of meal that tastes great to eat, and feels great after you eat it. You know, just so darn wholesome your body knows it!
"Lentils they do a body good"..... yeah, doubt it will have the same marketing impact.
I'll be back with more soon. Pls keeping clicking. And check out Jen's review. Oh, forgot to mention... remember this pasta that our girl Leslie tested out? It's one of my recipes on the dvd.
I still have that giveaway coming up that I mentioned a few posts back. Stay tuned, stay vegan!
